her parents were. Larry Jordan Montgomery:Paternal- Maternal 5th Great Grand

Virginia, and died Bef. August 09, 1779 in Henry County, Virginia. He
married ELIZABETH ANN MARTIN. She was born August 09, 1708 in New Kent,
Virginia, and died Bef. March 08, 1805 in Henry County, Virginia.
Notes for MERRY WEBB II:
Halifax County was created in 1752 from Lunenburg County. Pittsylvania
County was created from Halifax County in 1767. Henry County was created
from Pittsylvania County in 1776. Merry Webb II lived in three different
counties but never moved his residence. He was a resident of the area near
Wart Mountain when the inhavitants of the area petitioned for a road from
Hickey's Road near the plantation of Merry Webb. The Parish of Antrim was
created at the same time and included the same bounds.
Merry's will, dated 6 February 1774, mentions his wife Elizabeth and most of
his children. The Children include; James, Merry III, Martin, John, Mary,
Elizabeth, Lucy, and Millian. Martha is not mentioned in the will. Several
negro slaves are willed to his children. It also mentions land's that are to
be sold, including a mill. Henry County, Virginia will book I., 1779-1799.
Inventory 9 August 1779. Elizabeth Webb, widow, and sons Merry and John were
named executors of the will of Merry Webb. The lands of Merry Webb II. were
sold 3 September 1781 by Elizabeth Webb and Merry Webb. There was no
mention of John Webb, who was included as executor, which indicates to me
that John Webb was no longer in the area.
